About the 2017 Meeting
Join us for the 2017 IRP Annual Meeting, Navigating the Future. The IRP community will explore upcoming trends in the motor carrier and related industries and how these changes might impact IRP. Electronic credentials, the automation of commercial motor vehicles, evolving technologies in other areas – what possibilities does the future hold? How will potential changes and trends impact the motor carrier industry? Infrastructure? The work of IRP jurisdiction staff? The Plan itself? Join us for this important discussion.
